glad you are happy w/ them. i'm sure you will put them to good use. congrats
Thanks I am trying to hunt with them all of the time because my eyes aren't what they used to be. I am taking them squirrel hunting to start just to get use to them being on my neck.

you can get a shoulder harness instead of the standard neck strap. it keeps the binos from from bouncing back and forth.

cabelas has a set for $20. i'm planning on a harness for my new set Thanks I have already checked them out.

I know this sounds crazy, but I like that florescent string that they have in Yellow and will make a harness out of it and use the binos that way with the string instead of the factory furnished strap (for the smaller binos). It saves space and weight as well...I can put the Factory strap on it, just makes the binos so or noisy if you asked me, and when I do wear them they are securely placed inside my jacket that is for the compact like the 10x30 size binos, the large one like the TRACT 10x42mm optics, the 10x42mm Nikons or the Leupold Gold Ring Binos 10x42mm, I will go ahead and put the fat factory furnished strap on the binos, but the smaller ones like the Ziess Terra 10x30 ,BX-2 and BX-3 they will go inside my jacket or shirt when I am walking/scouting out...also for some reason when getting out and getting set up in the blind or ladder stand, the larger binos with their large straps will somehow drag or get caught on something else in my fanny pack or back pack that I normally take with me. The Redfield Rebels and the McKenzie BX-1 are the inexpensive (but very good for the money) binos and use the larger factory straps. In 2015 use the BX-1 all year long and replaced the factory strap with the florescent string strap and after the season replace the strap with the factory furnished strap....

The deer can pick up the larger strap movement as well, same goes for the rifle sling, I will always pull off the rifle sling to minimize movement. that is one reason why I use the string as my strap goes on my binos. I started doing this over 30 years ago on Leupold Pocket Binos (made by Leica) and have continue it with many different pairs of binos....just something to think about....

Thanks Bo I give it a try. I have been busy but I have used my new Binos 3 times in the last week and I am happy!! They are so clear and light. I used them Sat while hunting resident geese. The field we hunted is 1/4 mile long and 700 yards wide. From the blind you can see all the way across and hlf way down each end. We had deer come out at 500 yds and I took a peek- Wow very nice. I spied soem crows at 300 yds and I could see their feet plain as day. I got chance to look at a groundhog at 400 yds very clear. I tried them at first light 6:15 or so on a deer at 250 yds and they gather light very well- I could see the nubbs on his little head. That said I amd very pleas ewith my purchase and would recommend these to any one. Leopold BX-2 8X32. Thanks again Bo for all the info it really helped me make my decision.
